13bpower writes "Sun developer Erwann Chenede posted a new plugin for Nautilus that will integrate ZFS's backup capabilities with Nautilus. This should be a pretty killer feature." As one of the comments puts it, this adds a "Time Machine-esque" function to Solaris, through which a user can specify backup frequency, and when needed browse from available snapshots to restore files.

+ - Sun refuses LGPL code for Openoffice; Novell forks-> 1

Submitted by TRS-80
TRS-80 (15569) writes "Kohei Yoshida wrote a long post on the history of Calc Solver, an optimization solver module for the Calc component of OpenOffice.org. After three years of jumping through Sun's hoops on his own time, Sun says it will duplicate the work because Kohei doesn't want to sign over ownership of the code. Adding insult to injury, Sun then invites him join this duplication. Because of Sun's refusal to accept LPGL extensions in the upstream code, Michael Meeks (who recently talked about Sun's OO.o community failings, and ODF and OOXML) has announced ooo-build (previously just for build fixes) is now a formal fork of OpenOffice to be located at http://go-oo.org/. Will Sun admit it's being a control freak or continue with pointless duplication?"

This article talks more about the hotkey inconsistencies and overpowered units, stuff real Starcraft players care more about rather than just "what's cool" that you can find on any other game review site. For those that weren't able to play Starcraft II at BlizzCon, this will give you the recap of what to expect."

El conductor de 20 años circulaba por la ciudad suroccidental de Tartu a primera hora del domingo, ayudado por las instrucciones de su pasajero de 16 años. "En principio pensaron que había bebido, pero el hombre seguía sin acertar dónde estaba el tubo para la prueba de alcoholemia así que se dieron cuenta de que era ciego" y lo arrestaron, dijo el lunes la portavoz de la policía de Tartu, Marge Kohtla."
